  • Rams Fan Brethren

    I had a few minutes to burn a few thoughts. I'm not going to say be patient we will get to the promise land soon or we will drastically improve and become a contender, NO. I'm not "Johnny come lately." I have sat through blowouts at candlestick and been escorted out by inebriated annoying whiner fans with horns, bells and whistles, not good experience. I have been arrested at Anaheim Stadium for confrontation with Raider player and fans, blowout at home, not good. I have also sat through games at home where Redskins and their fans completely took over our house!!! NOT GOOD!!! People in my neighborhood, school, work and other places heckle me "The Lambs!"

    When the Raiders played in LA my former associates took to them and would invite me to their games. THEY WON SUPERBOWL! Still I couldn't turn to the dark side, didn't feel right. I stuck to my team through adversity, even the ultimate heartbreak... they moved.

    The GSOT era awakened a new spirit within me, a victorious one. Now ridicule turned to hate, colleagues would wish painful injury upon Warner and Faulk. Now people took me serious.

    I'm sorry if some here feel they can't take it no more enduring disappointing seasons. Believe me if you walk away and put on another teams jersey it will not make you happier. What will? Going back to why you like this team. The presence of gold horns on the field. Even if we score ONE TD ALL SEASON savor it, there is no better feeling.

    Our new motto will be "together we suffer as one we triumph!" Keep your heads up and enjoy the small moments. I do not take pleasure in the exultation of a mighty one, but the overcoming of adversity from the lowly.


    Together We Suffer as One We Triumph!

      Re: Rams Fan Brethren

      For some years now (ever since ive been of legal age) id go the bar on Sunday with a bunch of my friends. Most of them Were buccaneers fans, there would be a few steelers fans(for some reason tampa has a lot of fans of Phili teams), some cowboys fan, a saint fan and a couple other teams here and there.

      Id always be supporting my Rams, after a while, my friends really would stop asking me how the rams did, cause they already knew they were gonna lose, some sunday one might ask howd the rams do? and ofc id have to tell how they got there ass kicked in or at the end of the season theyd ask and id have to tell them what our horrible record was and no, they definatly were not going to the playoffs.

      People would ask me why im a rams fan, and id tell them what i tell everyone, when the rams moved to stl, i jumped on board and became a rams fan and a football fan. they usually just look at me like mk....but why not the bucs? idk, never felt close with them i guess. I do root for the bucs, they are my #2 team, but mainly cause i dont like the falcon/saints/panthers and i grew up in tampa. They never came close to being my #1 team and never will, i dont love them, i love the rams, and always have and always will. The rams moving to stl was new for them and new for me. Stl is there home for me and always will be. I will never abandon this team and never thought about it even once, even when im surrounded by fans of other teams and not one of my friends or family that i grew up with like the rams. so next time one of my buddies asks me mockingly how my rams are doin? ill tell them the truth, Not so good right now, but we'll get there.

      Together We Suffer as One We Triumph!

        ...When you ain't got nothin' (no expectations),
        you got nothin' to lose (no disappointment).

        What a p.o.s. decade.

        SB followed by 5 years of paying for players no longer on the team,
        that SOB Vermiel retiring,
        palace intrigue that makes Machiavelli look like Jimmy Carter,
        a decade of drafting D-linemenn with no hits,
        drafting in the top 5 for five years of the highest rookie salaries in the history of the NFL,
        constant injuries to the only players worth a ****,
        finally getting a great (rookie) QB who has to learn 2 systems in as many years,
        2 total busts at RT, (after LETTING FRED MILLER GO - WHY?),
        paying through the ass for bad interior lineman,
        did I mention LONDON FLETCHER IS STILL PLAYING (WELL),
        Warner getting ****canned and thriving,

        and regardless of coaching, management, drafts, solar eclipses, terrorist attacks, wars, types of field turf,
        uniforms, and fan support or lack thereof, we've seen the same **** on the field for ten ******* years.

        Deny if you want, but it's true. And I'm a fan, and always will be.

          Re: Rams Fan Brethren

          Been a Rams fan since 1998 (kindergarten to be precise). I was an innocent little kid who liked the Rams because of their throwback uniforms and was hooked ever since. Coincidentally, they won their Super Bowl a year after I became a fan of this team and it was a dose of bliss being a part of this team.. this community.. this family... Times are tough, it's not our time this year, maybe next season but we should expect good karma to come back with us, the football gods once again test our faith on this team and it's a hard pill to swallow but I'll keep moving forward through thick and lots of thin. The Pats had it tough for them before Kraft became their owner and look where they are now. Kroenke will lead us to the promised land, we just need the patience and hopefully he understands the dynamics of football in the management and coaching field to lead us there...

          Until then.. GO RAMS!!!

            When this season is over, is it rightfully time to start promoting:

            In Kroenke we trust!!!

            he has built all his teams up he has owned, whats to say it wont happen with the rams either?

              Going even further back ...

              Tony Banks era
              Lawrence Phillips
              '95
              Losing Kevin Greene
              Losing Jerome Bettis
              Not getting it done w/ Everett, Ellard and Flipper

              That would be at least 2 pos decades :disapointed:
              If a team won their division seven straight times, that would be a NFL record. Now add on that team did it with seven different QB's in seven straight years,that record is unbeatable. To do that feat, you must of had a great Defense. Jack Youngblood was the captain of that defense.

                As a regular reader of TMQ, Easterbrook is big on the "football gods"; and I'ts facinating to observe this world (football) from the perspective of "from above". They're watching.

                Look what's happening in the world of baseball right now. Baseball gods? Yes, me thinks.

                  Tired of being a Rams fan
                  by ljcrayton
                  I'm not a bandwagon fan. I am from the STL and I root for the Rams because as a kid, it was the talk around town. Everywhere you turned, it was all about the LA Rams moving to STL. We were happy to have a football team and were hoping if they were anything like our Cardinals, it was going to be on helluva ride.

                  4 years later, something magical happened. I was only in the 8th grade and our hometown was scared when Trent Green went down. They thought no one would watch or buy tickets. So believe it or not, dominoes stepped in. They made a deal when Kurt Warner was named starter that they would take a dollar off for every touchdown the rams scored. I remember the second week of the season, they scored 5 TD's and a pizza was 2 bucks.

                  Unless something like this happens, I no longer have a reason to watch football. I know some of you older fans are thinking this younger generation gives up to easy but lets be serious.

                  In 2010, we had a chance to get to the playoffs. All we had to do was go 8-8 and we couldn't do it. Our division was the laughing stock. All teams made changes and let me see....The Whiners and Seahawks are in the talk every year about the Superbowl and the Cardinals won 10 games and are now leading our division and look at the Rams.

                  We have an old school minded coach who seems to get out coached in every game unless he pulls out some special teams tricks. This is an offensive league period. All defensive minded coaches are looking terrible and Fisher is no exception to the rule. His overall record as a coach is barely over .500. What in the blue hell was he supposed to do in STL?

                  I am officially ashamed to be a Rams fan. I haven't touched my Jerseys, my Rams snuggy, my giant sign that reads "Rams Drive," or my Rams coffee cup. I have a co worker that's a Whiner fan and another that's a Cardinals fan and I find myself leaving and actually doing work when football is mentioned. (Doesn't help my boss is a Cowboys fan....)

                  People actually feel sorry for me when I say I'm a Rams fan. They genuinely look sorry in the face and it freaking sucks. 5 years ago, I was still having hope even at 2-14. Now, I've just given up. The Rams is just a bunch of excuses with a coach who "can't get with the times."

                  You can talk about the Jags or Raiders all you want but we are the worst. We were in the same situation as the Whiners, Cardinals, and Seahawks and in the EXACT SAME AMOUNT OF TIME AND 3 EXTRA 1ST ROUND PICKS we are the same pathetic team and they are all playoff worthy.

                  ENOUGH OF THIS CRAP! No more optimism. We've been waiting for 11 years for this mysterious thing called "next season" but in the end, next season ends up being last season over and over and over and over and over and over again. Seems like STL is where football players go to die. Tavon Austin needs to leave so he can...

                  The only good thing about this year is that Im finally gonna get rid of all you bandwaggon fans who jumped on board when the Rams won the Super Bowl. Good riddence!

                  Its like you dont get that teams have off years due to injuries and bad luck. What did you become football fans in the last two years or something?

                  Oh yeah, that's right, you did! :tongue: LOL

                  Glad to be Aboard
                  by RamFan_Til_I_Die
                  Don't know how I've been a Rams fan and internet junkie for so long and never came across this site, but I'm glad I found it. It's great to see so many Rams fans in one spot and such an active forum.

                  Some history...I live in Bakersfield, which is sort of in between San Francisco and L.A. My brother and Dad were ***** fans, so of course being the obnoxious brat I was, decided to become a Rams fan just to piss them off (I guess I could really claim to be a real fan sometime around 3rd-4th grade). Well as you know we were the niners', heck the whole league's during the 90's, red headed step children for a long time and my family and friends (I knew no other Rams fans; everyone mostly liked the Raiders, *****, or Cowboys) loved to give me hell about it.

                  Through the playoff let downs in the late 80's (who could forget Jim Everett's "phantom sack") and the royal spankings we received in the 90's I remained true. When the team moved to St Louis in '95 they broke my heart. I had yet been able to go to L.A. to see them play and I knew my chance was over. I, like many fans, felt betrayed by their leaving, and many Rams fans I knew took this as an excuse to jump ship from the fast sinking Rams team. I too considered this and even at one point tried to find another team to cheer for, but no other team felt right to me; in fact it just felt plain wrong. The first few years in St Louis were rough, and like always I would tell myself, "There's always next year", and sit there hopelessly as Georgia Frontiere made bad trade after bad trade and would continually get rid of all our promising stars.

                  As we all know things changed dramatically in '99 with the arrival of Faulk and the blessing sent from above named Kurt Warner. That season was the season of my life. I felt pride in my team that I had never known before. When we won the Superbowl, it was an amazing thing...our years of being a second rate team were over. Even when we got robbed by the Patriots in Super Bowl XXXVI I was still proud...crushed by the loss, but proud.

                  The last few years have been a little rough since I got so used to the winning we were doing. Losing to the ***** twice last year killed me.

                  Let's skip to now and let me say I am glad Martz is gone. He was a great Offensive Coordinator, but made way too many bad decisions to deserve a head coaching job. We have a long season ahead of us, and Scott Linehan has a lot to prove, but I am confident in their game plan, the defense of Jim Haslett, and the running game of Stephen Jackson to go along with our always amazing passing game. It may not gel perfectly this year, but we are definitely headed in the right direction, and I can say without a doubt I will be a Rams fan until the day I die.

                  I finally got a chance to go see the rams play in St Louis last year against the Titans. Got 2nd row seats in the middle of...

                  If you survive this year, you are truly a Rams fan.
                  by AvengerRam_old
                  Some of us are old-timers... fans of the team since the L.A. days.

                  Some are newer fans... perhaps coming on board when the Rams moved to St. Louis, or during the GSOT days.

                  Either way, we have now reached the ultimate test. Things have never been this bad. The Rams performance has been that of an expansion team. There is essentially a mutiny going on, with the team striking back with cuts, benchings and possibly trade threats.

                  If there was ever a time to expect fans to jump ship, this would be it.

                  Still, I doubt many will. I think those who post here will remain loyal and hope for better days. Those who do can truly call themselves Rams fans.

                  Blame the Victim? Fan in the wrong stadium
                  by Rampingitup
                  Over and over again I have seen in the news about fans of a visiting team being abused by home team fans, and the constant barrage of people who callously state, "Well what do you expect?" "His own fault for being there." So my question to you is do you really honestly believe that if you are at a Rams home game and there is a fan there for the visiting team that it is okay to verbally abuse them, throw food at them, dump drinks on them, shove them, obstruct their view of the game, and finally assault them?

                  I have a bit of inside perspective on this I have only ever been to 2 live games. Both times I was harassed, the second time I was assaulted. This was back before it was cool and trendy to blast this type of thing in the media. I got 3 days in the hospital, my attackers got jail time.

                  So again while I would accept that trash talk would be likely, do you really honestly believe it should be okay to do all the rest to a visiting fan?
